Updated 2/15/2012- Price Changes and New Series Added

The MAP (minimum advertised prices) of Samsung’s 2012 LED LCD and Full HD plasma lines are here. The first LED and plasma releases will ship next month (March). As written in our previous article, Samsung plans to use a one price for all dealer strategy of its mid to high end HDTVs.

The 2012 MAP pricing is considerably higher than what you would pay if you compare a given model to a closeout deal on remaining 2011s, especially with the 8000 and 7500 and 7100 LEDs as well as the 8000 and 7000 plasmas (called 8000 and 7000 series in the 2011 model line). Check out the  best closeout deals here .

Samsung’s biggest product changes for 2012 are in the form of its new interactive speech recognition/gesture remotes and TVs with built-in video cameras. To date, Samsung has not been touting 2012 performance improvements.

Please note, as is common within the TV industry, some MAPs may change prior to product shipping as Samsung makes final adjustments based on its competitors price announcements. We’ve updated our list prior to today’s publication with the latest price information obtained from industry sources, although some may still be subject to change, right up until time they arrive on dealers’ shelves.
